The late Jonathan Bowden on biology, feminism and traditional societies

From 24:59:

In what sense do you understand men and women to be different and in what way should societal and other institutions reflect those differences?


"I think life determines the difference. I think it is biological. Some women have different brains. They socialise and interact with each other in completely different ways. Deep down almost everyone understands this. There is always a problem with the proportion of women who are completely capable of doing quite advanced male careers. Do you rip up what society always was to facilitate this active, gifted and militant minority to get their own way? The West is a society that allows it to do that. It has made a lot of other people rather unhappy - both male and female. 70% of women just want a home-based option: a man and children, despite all the ideology that goes around, but there is still 30% that would want something different. The Western tradition is slightly different to the Asiatic, the Negroid, the Arab, the Eurasian and others. Women have always had more of a stake publicly in Western societies. The Germanic tribes the women often fought behind the men. The men went first. I am opposed to feminism but at the same time there are gifted women who can perform certain public roles, but as long as you ideologise on what deep down most men and women want, the truth is natural biology will take care of these things. You have to apply immense pressure on a society to get it to act in a counter-propositional and non-biological way. You have to engage in intense propagandistic efforts through the media to try and reverse gender roles and force inverted stereotypes on people. If you take all that off and allow the natural quote unquote political incorrectness of gender roles to proliferate you will find that you will have the odd MI5 Chief who is a woman and the odd judge who is a woman but broadly speaking you will have a traditional society where the roles are quite clearly male and female and deep down no woman respects a man who doesn't think that although they don't like him saying this."
